  • Mission:
  • Angel Flight West (AFW) arranges free air transportation in response to health care and other compelling human needs. AFW links volunteer pilots in private aircraft with people in need whose health care and other circumstances require them to travel to and from facilities throughout Oregon and 12 other Western states. Our volunteer pilots donate the costs of all flights. There is never a charge for an Angel Flight West mission.

    When weather or other conditions keep our pilots on the ground, we do our best to arrange alternate transportation, such as flights donated by Alaska Airlines and other commercial airline partners, or by purchasing tickets through our Passenger Assistance Fund.

    For every dollar received, Angel Flight West can provide $2-$4 in services.

  • History:
  • In 1983, Angel Flight West’s first year of service, a dozen pilots undertook 15 missions to a handful of medical facilities. Initial programs focused on California, with occasional services to adjoining states. In 1998, Angel Flight West (AFW) implemented an ambitious expansion program to establish local branches – called “Wings” – in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. California was divided into two Wings, Northern California and Southern California. In 2003, through a merger with another charitable aviation organization, Angel Flight West’s territory expanded to include Alaska and Hawaii.

    Today, AFW has a volunteer network of 1,600-plus pilots, who last year completed nearly 4,200 mercy flights for over 250 hospitals and agencies.
